Southwood Kitchen-Daphne, Alabama

Keeping it Local today at Southwood Kitchen. This is fine dining in a casual atmosphere. We love this place for lunch, but you can come here in the evening for any special occasion. This is a great place for a business lunch, date lunch, or lunch out with friends. I love that I can bring my dad here as well, as this restaurant is handicapped accessible. Just come in through the side door. The last time we visited, I tried the Beef Tenderloin Risotto with mushrooms, tomatoes, and garlic in a veal stock with parmesan and chives. I find this to be a very comforting meal, especially on a cold day. Or maybe you just need a warm hug. This dish will give it to you. Marty ordered the Filet Medallion, which is a 4oz grilled CAB tenderloin with whipped potatoes and veggies. CAB tenderloin is a special cut of beef that comes from the primal loin or the sub-primal sirloin of the cattle. We also recommend that you try the BBQ Shrimp as an appetizer. It comes with grilled bread in a shrimp stock butter sauce. This sauce is a great dip if you have some French fries on the side. We did this after ordering the Snake River Wagyu French Dip sandwich with mushroom and onion confit, provolone cheese, and horseradish on a baguette. We had some fries on the side, so we just dipped them right into the sauce. Southwood Kitchen has always been one of my favorite places to visit. Southwood Kitchen is located at 1203 US HWY 98, Suite 3D, in Daphne Al 36526. For reservations, call 251.626.6676.
